Pullarao Pentapati – Greece is perhaps the oldest and greatest civilization of man. The Chinese and Indian civilizations and some South American civilizations have also been very old. But Greece has been a continuous trend-setter of humanity. Greece is part of the 19 European nations union. They have a common visa and a common currency. It is no longer a Greek crisis since the deadline has past. Along with Portugal, France and Italy, Greece forms part of the Mediterranean nations. They have no oil or major minerals and now all suffer from economic problems. These countries are unable to avoid a large State benefits programs and a big state-employment sector and pension and socials services. These 4 nations are now undergoing serious recession and there is no visible light at the end of the tunnel.

It is welcome that the Indian Prime Minister is visiting countries in the Indian Ocean who are extremely close, both geographically and ethnically to India. Aside from centuries-old relationships with such countries in the Indian Ocean, a significant number of Indians went over there and settled there. There is a huge Indian Diaspora in these countries. Such a population composition makes for both good and sometimes tricky relations.
While India is fixated on Kejriwal, there is a much more serious political drama going on in Bihar. While BJP lost Delhi, Bihar will have new political equations favorable to BJP. The was the Bihar fight erupted between Ex- Chief Minister Nitesh Kumar and present Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi has become a comedy and Nitesh Kumar looks like the comedian . Delhi is a small state with 7 MPs and Bihar has 40 MPs. What happens in Bihar is closely watched by Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Bengal, Odisha and Chhattisgarh. Nitesh Kumar is facing a very embarrassing situation as one of his followers has rebelled. “A man in my position cannot afford to look ridiculous “said a famous Hollywood film producer in the greatest film “The Godfather. Nitesh Kumar looks ridiculous now. In May, 2014, after Nitesh Kumar’s party lost the Parliament elections, he resigned from post of Chief Minister, saying he was morally responsible. The country applauded him for his principled stance. Instead of appointing a senior and powerful minister as Chief Minister, Nitesh Kumar appointed a docile Dalit leader Jitan Ram Manjhi as Chief Minister.

The Congress controlled Delhi for 15 years. In 2013, AAP of Kejriwal defeated the Congress decisively and took away all its vote banks. In 2013, BJP won 31 MLAs out of 70. Kejriwal ( AAP) won 28 and Congress got only 8 MLAs, with the 15 years Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit losing her own seat. Congress has not recovered from this shock.
Greater Hyderabad is the largest concentration of Telugus in the world. For Telugus to be a successful ethnic and language group in the world, Hyderabad and Telengana must be economically successfully. Since the division of the State into two, people would have realized that the promises made to the two States in Parliament and outside are not honored at all and no one really cares. We are on our own. One cannot predict political success. But one can definitely plan an economic success story. Actually it is very simple. If Telengana is to be successful, all it has to do is to ensure that things go on as usual. There will be automatic economic growth and prosperity.
